Reviews for A Little Night Music

May 16, 2018

"The cast are excellent from the offset with the opening number, Overture/Night Waltz. Standout numbers include; The Miller’s Son and of course, the haunting classic that is Send in the Clowns. However, it is the uplifting, A Weekend in the Country that really highlights the strength of the production. This is a song that involves the whole company complete with witty lyrics, a tremendous musical arrangement, and choreography of the highest level from Yukiko Masui, this all blends to create a perfect theatrical storm.

Alex Clifton’s direction in conjunction with Masui’s choreography work in harmony with one another. There are several moments throughout the production where the action resembles a scene from a painting. The set is minimal which does not hinder the production but allows the cast to take full advantage of the Storyhouse’s vast stage." by The review's hub
